What you can expect

Step back in time into a fairytale and discover enchanting Bruges. Stroll through the cobbled streets of the city and past charming houses by the edge of the canal, and you'll soon see why Bruges is known as the 'Venice of the North' and the center of the medieval town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Hear about the murderous past of The Burg, the myth surrounding the Minnewater or the stories behind the artwork of The Church of our Lady. As we wander through the medieval streets I will tell of local heroes and vagabonds. We'll pass through quaint squares that have fascinating artwork by local artists.

I have lived here for over 5 years and find I am continuously learning more tales that fascinate me. My passion is to pass these stories on, to make you feel you were part of this city's rich history.

If there is a particular square or street that you want to visit, or perhaps some artwork by local artists that you’d like to see, just let me know. I can personalize the tour according to your wishes.
